Blighted Ovum Progesterone
I had an empty sac at 5 weeks but my hCG was somewhere between 29000 to 50000. However my progesterone is only 8.7, is this a blighted ovum?
My Hcg levels have more than doubled, 9/11 hcg was 17 9/15 HCG was 120 and 9/17 HCG was 287.. progesterone 9/11 was 29. Could this be a blighted ovum?
I have had 1 blighted ovum and i am now pregnant my hCG was 699 now 1375 in 48 hrs and progesterone is >40. are these numbers good? bo?
Yes: Very good. If you were my patient, I would bring you in for an ultrasound in 2-4 weeks. ...Read more

Had 2 healthy pregnancies. Now had a blighted ovum in Feb and am currently pregnant but have low HCG and been put on progesterone. What's going on?
Unclear: Not sure what you mean by having a 'low' HCG. Typically you are doubling appropriately or you are not. The progesterone is usually supplemented if it has been shown to be low for the gestational age. You have two term, uncomplicated pregnancies. The blighted ovum is a fluke occurrence that cannot be corrected for. Not sure what is going on. Talk to your doctor ...Read more
I'm 6 wks pregnant, has US and saw only gestational sac, empty inside. Hcg 11,000, progesterone 14. Redraw tomorrow. could this be a blighted ovum?
Yes: Unfortunately, if all is as you say, you are correct. With a bHCG of 11,000 and no fetal pole, it is suspicious for a blighted ovum. However, it is necessary to repeat the bHCG in 48 hours. Don't be surprised if it doubles and your f/u ultrasound shows a viable IUP. I have seen this happen! Sonographic results are usually as good as the person scanning. Your best bet is the blood test. Good Luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
History of 1 blighted ovum on 08/16. Pcos patient. Unknown weeks of current preg. Should i ask for progesterone test due to pcos or wait for a reason?
277 hCG on 11/04 and numbers doubled on 11/06. Pcos and blighted ovum on 08/16. Don't know my progesterone level. Due to conditions and loss, should i?
The doc should: Draw a Progesterone level with the beta because a high one is reassuring a a low one under 5 is not, 5-10 is worrisome, over 10 is normal, over 20 is favorable and repeat the beta in 3 days should double every 3 days if u are preg now the blighted ovum on 8/16 has nothing to do with this pregnancy. ...Read more
I had my 1st u/s with my re yesterday . We saw no hb nor fetal pole. Small yoke sack visible measuring 6w2d. Progesterone 24, hCG 13, 000. I'm thinking blighted ovum?:( I have had two losses 1 twins.
Unclear question: First of all, I am sorry for your multiple fetal losses, however, there is not enough information to answer your question. Critical data such as lmp, manner of pregnancy (iui or ivf) are missing. Talk to your re about your concerns as he/she has all of that data at hand. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends on testing: A blighted ovum means that that portion of the embryo that was to become the baby did not develop properly, but the portion that was to become the placenta did. So you have rising hormone levels and even a gestational sac in the uterus, but the sac is 'empty'. Older women with poor egg quality have higher chances of blighted pregnancy. If there is no genetic issue with you, then <15% chance. ...Read more
Certainly possible: It would be difficult to give you a number or a percent chance. Blighted ovums and early miscarriage are just very common. Unfortunately it can happen again. Assuming you have no medical issues though a normal healthy pregnancy is statistically more likely. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It can be: A blighted ovum means the embryo (the actual baby to be) either does not develop or dies very early in utero. Since the embryo is the last of the early anatomy detected by us (first gestational sac and double decidual sac sign, then yolk sac and finally fetal pole/embryo), the others can be present, and a pregnancy test can be positive, without a fetal pole. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
